I was in Afghanistan when Andy Reid, Childress, John Fox and some others came to visit on a USO tour. Unfortunately, I was outside of the wire, so I never got to meet one or anything, Toby Keith came and put on a concert for us, missed that as well, USO tour's are usually for Fobbits, lol, which isn't bad, but to combat guys rarely get to take part.

Awesome thing for them to do, none the less.

That always pissed me off. I was in the 82nd and we lived outside of the wire. I would get so annoyed when they would show shots of soldiers during sporting events etc. in Iraq, but the guys in danger never got to see the celebs etc. One tour Tito Ortiz was suppose to come visit us but pussed out.

Oh and lets be honest with ourselves vets, most of us did what we did for the adrendaline rush. I never cared about those worthless a-holes that lived there.
